After finding success with Twisted Soul Cookhouse and Pours, chef Deborah VanTrece is set to open her second Atlanta restaurant later this month. Named for VanTrece’s mother, Oreatha’s at the Point opens March 31 in the Cascade Heights neighborhood with a menu inspired by home-cooked meals from moms from around the globe

“As a mom, I’ve always appreciated the special dishes that mothers make to comfort and nurture their families,” VanTrece says in a press release.

Located where Cascade Road meets Benjamin E. Mays Drive in southwest Atlanta, the opening of Oreatha’s is part of a revitalization effort in the Cascade Heights neighborhood, also the birthplace of two legendary Georgians: congressman John Lewis and baseball and home run icon Hank Aaron.

Leading the kitchen at Oreatha’s is chef Christian “Lucke” Bell, formerly of Rock Steady. Expect dishes from Bell drawing from VanTrece’s global travels, including tempura miso fried artichokes, fried duck ravioli with aglio e olio and bechamel sauce, and Thai-seasoned catfish with tamarind hot sauce served with coconut grits and curry coleslaw. The menu also features a hat tip to the restaurant’s namesake in the smoked duck pot pie.

Look for sandwiches and a turkey burger as well as a selection of salads like the panzanella burrata collards and a nori-crusted salmon niçoise, along with bread service featuring hot water cornbread, focaccia, and naan. For dessert, there’s chocolate chai tiramisu, pecan pie bakalva, and pastries from chef Sade McMullen of Sam and Izzy’s Sweets and chef Briana Riddock, the pastry chef at Rock Steady.

Wine, beer, and cocktails from beverage director Kursten Berry round out the bar menu here.
